Apple Pencil Pro Unveiled With New Squeeze Gesture, Haptic Feedback, Find My, and More

Apple today introduced the Apple Pencil Pro with a new squeeze gesture, gyroscope, haptic feedback, Find My support, and more.

Apple Pencil Pro Newsroom
A new sensor in the Apple Pencil Pro allows users to squeeze the accessory to bring up a tool palette to quickly switch tools, line weights, and colors. In addition, a new gyroscope allows users to rotate the Apple Pencil Pro for precise control of shaped pen and brush tools.

Equipped with a new haptic engine, the Apple Pencil Pro provides a light tap when users squeeze, use double-tap, or snap to a Smart Shape.

Apple Pencil Pro
Apple Pencil Pro is the first Apple Pencil with support for the Find My app, which helps users find the accessory if it is misplaced.

Apple Pencil Pro pairs, charges, and is stored on the side of the newly-announced iPad Pro and iPad Air models, which feature a new magnetic interface. It is not compatible with any other iPad models.

In the U.S., the Apple Pencil Pro is priced at $129. It is available to order starting today, and launches Wednesday, May 15.

Lol absolutely laughable they’re splitting the pencil product line. No end to their idiocy and greed.

Pencil Pro ? what the hell.

Then artificially lock it to use on the new iPads only. On top of the not reducing the price of the 2nd gen pencil. Poor business ethics.

They still sell 4 different pencils? Can't they just have 2 and make the cheap one compatible with all ipads and the pro compatible with the last few versions?

Honestly Apple can go screw themselves over locking out the new pencil to the new iPads. Such a gross way to try and force more sales of the new iPads.

Why is this Pencil Pro working on the M2 Air and is not working on the M2 Pro? Its absurd.

Having 4 different Pencil models is also a convolluted mess.
